I cannot use users. Eg, in the chrooted bash, 'ls -l' returns 0 0 for

Perhaps there's something wrong whith Pam or similar things... I don't
know a lot about them.
It seems that ls doesn't use pam. (see ldd, and also experiments show this.)
For me ls shows numbers, when /etc/passwd|group files are not
present. Are you sure your copies are at the right place? (no
symlinks of course)
For pam to work you'll have to copy the relevant libraries, too
(/lib/libpam*, I guess).
